Wow, too close to call!!

Holyfield's best wins:

Dwight Muhammad Qawi. Points 15 rounds

Riddick Bowe 2: Points 12 rounds

Mike Tyson 1: 11 round TKO

I believe that he was the underdog for all three of these! 33:1 against for Tyson.



Thomas Hearn's best wins:

Pipino Cuevas: KO 2

Wilfred Benitez: Points 15

Roberto Duran: KO 2


His points decision over Virgil Hill, when well past his prime is also notable!


The thing that makes the answer so difficult is that despite Hearn's victories above being so conclusive.....he was favorite in these fights with the exception of the Virgil Hill fight, I forget if he was favorite against Cuevas.

What undermines Holyfield's best wins was the fact that Bowe was not quite in the same shape for the return match as for the first in their trilogy......and also, Mike Tyson in 1996 was a fair bit post prime despite the odds.

Although by the same standard, perhaps Holyfield should have got the nod over Valuev at 48. Could have been quite an achievement.
